Physics Controversies Past and Present - One-Day Conference

Posted: 08 Dec 2017

'Physics Controversies Past and Present' One-Day Conference

Saturday 24th February 2018
10.30 am - 5.00 pm

(This event is organised by physics alumni who lead the Centre for the History and Philosophy of Physics - HAPP - based at St Cross college)

In both circumstances, controversies have often raged before a generally accepted view is adopted.
